Best Game of Thrones Villains

This list discusses all of our favorite or least favorite Game of Thrones/ A Song of Ice and Fire Villians
The Top Ten
1 Joffrey Baratheon Joffrey Baratheon is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

I think everybody hated Joffrey. He was evil and cruel and did not have even one good quality.

I don't know much about Game of Thrones. But I heard that he is annoying and I heard he ruined Season 8

2 Cersei Lannister Cersei Lannister is a fictional character created by American author George R. R. Martin. She is a prominent point of view character in Martin's award-winning A Song of Ice and Fire series, and also a main character in HBO's adaptation of the series, Game of Thrones.

Not the most evil one- far from that.
Also not the biggest threat- Tywin and Littlefinger are smarter, the white walkers are more dangerous, and Joffrey and Ramsay are more cruel.
However, none of the above are nearly as complex as Cersei.
First, she's introduced as smart, cornering the main character and causing the downfall of his family. Then, her children are threatened, and she goes mad while defending them, constantly making stupid decisions. She knows she needs the help of the Tyrells, but is too scared of the prophecy and what Margaery's presence might cause for her children.
Cersei's greatest enemy is Cersei.
"When you play the game of thrones, you win, or you die. There is no middle ground."
"Power is power."
"Margaery will dig her claws in, you will dig your claws in and you'll fight over him like beasts until you rip him apart. I will burn our house to the ground before I let that happen! "
Definitely my favorite character.

"Power is power."

"When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground."

"Everyone who isn't us is an enemy."

"Tears aren't a woman's only weapon. The best one's between your legs."

A queen with tons of sass who everyone loves hating.

You win, or you die.
She isn't as evil as Joffrey, Ramsey, Walder, Craster, Tywin or many, many others. That's why she's the best. She's an incredibly fleshed out character, and it's easy to see what drives her.

I'm not sure if I'd class her as a villain considering she is way more complex than that but she's a fantastic character none the less.

3 Ramsay Snow / Bolton Ramsay Bolton, also known as Ramsay Snow, is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

I don't understand why Joffrey is above him. I mean they're both cruel for sure but Joffrey gives orders and tells others to do those things for him while Ramsay does more on his own. I think the big difference between them is that Joffrey would just be a little whiney boy if he had no knights or anything like that who would run away from any dangerous situation (remember the war) but Ramsay does not need any help with harming, torturing or killing who ever he wants to.

I think he is the really best evil character in Game of Thrones. Of course, Joffrey and Cersei are really good villains, but Joffrey is only a young, crazy kid, and he has never been the real king, because of his mother. Cersei is really evil, but we felt really sad (and a bit happy, okay) during the Walk of Shame at the end of the fifth season. Ramsay is full of madness, evilness and he is the evilest person in Westeros!

Imagine Joffrey if he was more sadistic, actually smart, and always on steroids. Ramsay is so much better as a villain

A true psychopath who got the most satisfying defeat. A dog that needed to be put down.

4 Tywin Lannister Tywin Lannister is a fictional character in the epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire by American novelist George R. R. Martin.

May not have been true evil like Ramsay or Joffrey, but Tywin was responsible for more deaths than anyone else in the show, plus he was so charismatic and entertaining to watch. Charles Dance was the best villain ever

Tywin was the real king of westeros. Joffery spent no time in politics and had no power over tywin. Tywin is also responsible for sexually assaulting tyroin and tysha as children. Tywin's name comes from the word tyrant.

He is best character in the serie, but I don't think him as the villain. He has do many bad things, but still he isn't villain.

The only villain that actually has a villain song: The Rains of Castermere.
Poor Catlyn Stark knew what was coming...

5 Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish Petyr Baelish, nicknamed Littlefinger, is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

A Machiavellian villain mastermind. He is a megalomaniac, who shows traits of manipulation and superficial charm. Although he may act like a good person, he secretly has bad intentions.

"Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder! " Such an awesome villain! Such a great character! Such an incredible actor!

He is an intelligent self made man. Even though I admit he is not a good person, I actually root for him.

This character is effectively the show's wildcard. He could do anything at any moment for any reason.

6 Gregor Clegane / The Mountain Ser Gregor Clegane, nicknamed The Mountain, is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

Perhaps he is even more cruel than Joffrey. He is a sadistic, murdering rapist who was awarded knighthood for it.

7 Melisandre / The Red Priestess

Maybe Davos put her on this list? Well, you may side with her and you may not, but she was done some very wicked things that have earned her a place on this list.

8 The Night's King

He took down Viserion, making him the dragon slayer. Plus he has the largest army the world has ever seen.

Come on people...

9 Euron Greyjoy

I really liked his entrance in the show (I was fine with his Kingsmoot scene), but I'll admit that I thought Book Euron was more intimidating and interesting as a character, and seemed like more of a badass. All that said, I'm looking forward to seeing what this guy does in Season 7.

I know he didn't make much of an impression to fans in his Season 6 debut. But I guarantee by the end of Season 7, everyone will have a completely different opinion on him and he may well be one of the best villains in the show

Joffrey was a mad king influenced by power
Littlefinger is the conductor of all chaos
Ramsay was the monster with no remorse
And Euron is Satan's witness. The representative of fear and evil.

10 Qyburn
The Contenders
11 Walder Frey Walder Frey is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

The Red Wedding! Enough said. This man is truly despicable.

12 Roose Bolton

You little traitor. You murdered Robb Stark and you broke my heart. I did'nt shed a single tear when your sadistic son killed you the exact same way. The fans send their regards.

Probably the only person who poses a threat to Littlefinger, and able to hide the fact that he's even worse than his bastard.

13 High Sparrow The High Sparrow is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of high fantasy novels by American author George R. R.

A true fanatic who humbled himself on helping the poor yet brutally punished anyone whom he deemed to go against his beliefs

14 Sandor Clegane / The Hound Sandor Clegane, nicknamed The Hound, is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, and its television adaptation Game of Thrones.

He's not even a villain! He's a scarred antihero who actually help both Sansa with Joffreys torment ( she probably wouldn't admit it ) and helped Arya too with though at first it was for selfish reasons. If he's a villain, Jaime Lannister is one too... Truth is, they're both gray characters with desires to be good but morally hindered by the environment and circumstance they live in

While some of us may not hate him, we surely can agree that he is a villain to an extent. He's kind of like the Game of Thrones version of Gollum.

15 Daenerys Targaryen Daenerys Targaryen is a fictional character in George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels, as well as the television adaptation.
16 Karl Tanner
17 Aerys Targaryen / The Mad King
